't handled properly. we could be looking at layoffs, not just government workers but private sector workers and looking at, you know, a potential to go back into a recession. that's something no one wants. >> when you look at what's going on here, obviously, in terms of the kind of cuts that we need, look, we have got medicare and medicaid and social security and all these programs that americans want, but that need to be paid for, shouldn't -- with all this budget negotiates that we are dealing with, why not just say, look, agency a, tough cut this much. agency b, tough cut this much. isn't it about belt-tightening and looking forward to future growt growth? >> we need to make sure we don't stymie future growth by cutting too much now. cutting the deficit, the other aspect of it is making sure the economy grows are. we have to have a sustained growth period. not 3% growth at this point in time, sort of a magic cub nub for the economy at a minimum level that would allow us to not have to take austerity measures. the england tried the southwests and it put them into triple dip recession. we
is the governing body, a great place to go to find out information. but in general, as i was saying, this is such a rare incident that i think for people who go on regular cruise, every the 14 ships of carnival canceled, i've heard those pople are already rebooking their cruises. so people who are regular cruiser, they are committed to cruising. for people who haven't done it before, they're skittish. however what i'm super impressed by and what we've heard over and over again is how well carnival has hammed the situation. as you said, it is a pr nightmare for any company, but they've come out very forthcoming about what they're doing, giving them their money back, giving them credits toward a future cruise, giving them $500 in cash per passenger. and that is very much beyond what they need to do. >> all right. well, good for them. sounded like the crew did a really good job of trying to help them get through that difficult five days. i'm not a cruiser myself, but i'm willing to give it another shot. >> well that's good to hear. and actually incredibly this might be a good time to l
including a forward command center as well as search and rescue teams to assist local governments in accounting for individuals that are missing or may be trapped because we think there are some. also getting prepared to send state assets from the very state agencies, set up shelters. right now the most important thing is we account for all individuals and make sure they're safe and secure. >> also i understand that there is a high school that may be damaged. do you know anything about that? >> i have not received that report yet. i know the ema director right now is pretty busy and they're trying just to get their arms around to the significance of the damage but it's obviously a pretty wide area. would not doubt we probably have some schools that have been impacted in that area. it's a very populated area. a lot of businesses in that area. it's where the growth from hattiesburg has extended. it's densely populated with businesses as well as residences. >> how, robert, prepared are these areas for tornadoes? >> well, you know, unfortunately, we can -- most important thing is as f
we asked. and rubio scored highest when he talked about big government. watch this. >> and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. more government isn't going to help you get ahead, it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities, it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> all right. you might have noticed senator rubio needed a drink of water, taking a break -- everybody's talking about it. the way he reached over for the water bottle caused all kinds of things, buzz on the internet, watch. >> nothing has frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business, what we need is an accountable, efficient, and effective government that allows small and new businesses to create more middle class jobs. >> look, i

government oversight. despite all of this, though, the army wants the program to continue. tom vandenbrook is "usa today's" pentagon reporter. he wrote the article. welcome. >> good morning, carol. >> thanks so much for enlightening us on this issue. this program sends americans to iraq and afghanistan to win hearts and minds. tell us about sexual harassment, racism. outline these problems for us. >> these come in an army investigative report that we were -- we obtained through a freedom of information act request. the harassment seemed pretty gross. it was a contractor at the training base making really untoward comments toward the women. eventually, he was fired. that was documented. as well as racism. there was a white soldier who was referring to a section of the program and saying it was a ghetto because it had black people in it. that soldier was disciplined. >> yet some of the members of this group, with all the problems, were making more money than the secretary of defense? >> that's the most disturbing problem. it regards time sheet padding, and it was encouraged, apparently, acco
're told government divers went down into these freezing waters to take a look but were not able to see anything when they did. >> as you know, an asteroid also passed close to the earth yesterday. are these two events related in any way? that's the big question today. >> reporter: certainly. the broad scientific consensus from the last 24 hours or so seems to be no, it is just something of a cosmic coincidence that within hours of each other two different asteroids approached in from two different directions. unfortunately it was the big one that did the damage. susan? >> thank you. appreciate it. >>> well, from space to the water. we knew this would happen. the first passengers stranded aboard the disabled carnival "triumph" is suing. the lawsuit blames the company for negligence and fraud. cassie terry called her cruise "a floating hell and a floating toilet" that made her fear for her health. she is seeking unspecified damage. carnival says it has not seen the lawsuit and cannot comment yet on it. >>> the travel nightmare didn't end for some of the passengers even after they finally
tested, 29 out of 2,501 came back positive for horse dna. the government said it was front-loaded, if you will, the worst of the items tested first. we just heard from the secretary of the environment saying he hopes all the testing will be done by the end of the week. the results will be done by the end of next week. it may drag into next week, michael. >> so, nic, are people still buying what they think is beef? is it dangerous if it's horse meat? >> you know, i think that the danger issue has been somewhat laid to rest. the danger was it was horse meat contaminated with a drug that prevents or sort of cures animals of pain. but in humans, it's very, very dangerous. the levels you would have to eat we were told by the government scientists would be so high, impractical, unlikely. but consumer confidence has been marked. two-thirds of people here say there's no longer sure about what's on the box as they were before. and a quarter of people say that they're going to cut down buying processed meat. and another one-fifth of people said they'd like to cut down on buying processed meat, they
of government a bit more closely in his own hands. >> there's so much intrigue that surrounds the movements of the vatican, the mysticism, and it is an intriguing question. if the pope resigns, which he has signaled he intends to do on february 28th at 20 hours, which is when his papacy will end, he doesn't go back to being a cardinal, i would assume, because that is a designation given. he is certainly a bishop. do you think he could have -- i don't know the law, maybe you do, the canon law -- could he have any role in the decision process of who the next pope is? or is he simply excluded because he's not currently one of the 120 cardinals? >> reporter: this question obviously came up at the briefing that the vatican spokesperson, father federico lombardi provided for the press early afternoon rome time. in terms of what the pope is going to be called, lombardi says we don't actually know. that's one of the unanswered questions. probably the emeritus bishop of rome, that is, the former or retired bishop of rome. that has not been started. lombardi was categorical that benedict xvi will not
scenario will simulate flooding. flooding? yep. all the joshing about zombies had quebec's government worried the training exercise would lose its serious focus. >> under the leadership of this prime minister, canada will never become a safe haven for zombies ever. >> here here. >> reporter: canada has nothing to fear. as one guy posted on gawker, zombies are allergic to maple syrup. jeanne moos -- >> to the zombie apocalypse. >> reporter: -- cnn -- >> canada will never become a safe haven for zombies ever. >> here here. >> reporter: new york. >> that's so silly. that's it for me. i'm suzanne malveaux. "cnn newsroom" continues now with brooke baldwin. >>> happy friday. i woke up in mobile, alabama, talking to cruise ship passengers and right now i am back at cnn world headquarters in atlanta because if you watch the show enough you know i am a space geek and we are minutes away from this fly-by that will make space history. this is the first time an asteroid of this size will get this close to earth. so watch the clock with me. i'm talking eastern time. it is supposed to happen at 2:2
certainly think it's possible. now you will have the resources perhaps of the federal government coming to bear and not only the lapd. so framing it in that way can be helpful to law enforcement. and i also think sort of piggybacking on what paul said, i think at this point it's a desperate manhunt, but they need to understand what his motivations are. and you have the fbi profilers that can help with that. i think they're probably the best in the world at that. and the evidence that they took out of his mother's home is likely to help frame what motivates this guy to do it. yes, we've learned a lot from the manifesto, but i don't think that's enough because they still haven't found him. >> and glenda, in all your years of going what you do, i suppose this won't surprise you, but there are support groups for dorner popping up online. facebook pages, one person saying i propose electing a man for president actually who could no longer sit idly by and watch his malicious tyrants abuse the innocent. again, someone supporting dorner who allegedly killed family members of police to make his

by the commissioner as well as the federal government to change that because he had to abide by federal law when he moved them on to land controlled by the feds. now, there's conversations on whether or not they're going to move back to land controlled by the federal government. if that is the case, then the way kennedy used his administration to push marshall in terms of desegregating his team, certainly there could be conversation that the obama administration could have. so i'm not quite sure yet in terms of whether or not this name is going to be changed. there's still a lot more conversations that need to happen. >> thank you very much. i want you to stick around because terrence is going to come back. meantime, next, one country wants to get rid of online pornography and something borrowed, something blue, saying i do with 12,000 of your closest friends.

stations are getting out of control. the government is not doing anything about it. >> right. and that last guy i spoke to, his name is david jacobs. i asked him what about taking public transportation. what about taking the subway? and he told me he is not allowed to take the subway. he is banned from taking the subway because he was a 9/11 first responder. and due to respiratory illnesses and the poor air quality, doctors have banned him from taking the subway. he's really at the mercy of gas prices. when gas prices rise, they affect people many more ways than you can possibly imagine. >> is there one thing, or are we talking about a cocktail or factors behind the high gas prices? >> well, several things, actually. also showing signs of recovery. you'll see the demand for crude oil go up. it will push oil prices up as well. refineries typically around this time of year will close for maintenance. we're also seeing refineries shutting down because some of them are losing money. that puts pressure on supply and will send gas prices rising higher. john? >> zain asher, outside the gas station
their experience acknowledged by the government and appreciated by the government, but he's not a big fan of all the fanfare for him. >> it looked like at one point he was really holding back some tears as the president was recounting what happened on that battle back and you described it in vivid details. but is he an emotional young man like that? >> he's not emotional. he's actually quite the opposite. he's a quintessential archetype cowboy from the west there. he lives in north dakota and he's somebody who is laconic and keeps his emotions to himself. but recounting what happened that day, the men who followed his lead, running into danger, and the eight men who he was not able to save, that nobody could have saved. he is tough on himself. and he still thinks about them and he's still haunted by their loss. >> that battle was october 3rd, 2009. he left the army in 2011. what does he do now? >> he worked as an oil field safety specialist for an oil field company out in north dakota. his sister and her husband live out in north dakota, advised that it was a good, honest job. they're still gett
for the federal government. for the 19 states has it is affected the economic picture? >> and that's the thing, you know, you raise it incrementally and that's what i said, that even if you raise it to $9 let's just say, you know, it's still below the poverty threshold for a family of four. and then even just to get this through congress, good luck with that, because, you know, the last time law makers approved a similar bill, it was back in 2007. and, you know, democratic lawmakers, they've tried to hike the rate since then and it really winds up going nowhere, so that's why you see these states making these incremental changes, carol? >> alison kosik at the new york stock exchange. >>> michelle obama's favorite designer was past last night, we'll tell you who designed the sparkly crimson and black cocktail dress and why so many people did not seem to like it.

, the government, whoever the government may be, whether here in the united states or in europe or china will look at this particular event and start to change things. >> would you like some other government to decide to do something about this on their own? >> reporter: i just want somebody to do something about it, if it is going to happen. >> this one isn't going to hit us. not even going to hit our satellites, which is great, also. but you're right. we need to have -- think about this as a globe, as a civilization, as humanity itself, because i think it is beyond the capabilities of any single nation at this time to mount planetary protection. it is a lot of work. >> reporter: something we need to be thinking about. we were also talking about how this particular asteroid, what it is made up of. this meteorite behind us is dense. made up of orb. but this one, as you watch it tumbling past the planet, it might be more porous? >> most of the asteroids we have flown by with our spacecraft are porous, rubble piles of stoney material. only about 4% of rocks that come to earth as meteorites are iron,

the umbrella of economic growth as he talks about tax reform and government spending and his proposals on education, climate change and immigration. but while the wind is at his back, observers say president obama can't appear too bull-headed at the start of his second term. carol, also some news on what the president will say when it comes to climate change or perhaps i should say what he will not say tonight. lot of environmentalists were hoping he would say he's going to pursue new regulations on existing power plants because they are big producers of carbon emissions, big polluters. it turns out according to a senior administration official who told me that he will not do that and carol, i can tell you that will be disappointing for a number of environmentalists. >> brianna keilar reporting live from the white house. we'll have complete coverage on cnn starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >>> a carnival cruise ship that had been stuck at sea is on its way to mobile, alabama. carnival "triumph" is being towed there instead of mexico because of strong currents in the gulf. it's been anythi
the economy and jobs. and not the same old dribble about higher taxes and more government spending. >> so, boehner says no more of the same old dribble, his words. and these are the words of david gergen, our senior political analyst. the suspicion deepens, writes gergen, that the obama folks have secretly adopted a strategy of making republicans look so extreme that they will be driven from power in 2014, and the president can then govern the country as he chooses in his final two years in office. patricia, let me start with you here. will we know after the speech whether david gergen's suspicion is true, that the president is done with boehner and the republicans? wants to run him out of town? >> we'll have a very good idea. i think the first shot across the bow from the president toward the house republicans was his inaugural address. it was something i think most people expected him to reach out -- to reach a hand out to house republicans, to sort of say, okay, the fights are over, let's start to work together. he didn't do that at all. and house republicans were really quite livid, v
